“The Biggest Loser”, a popular TV show on the west, has recently been held in Malaysia. It is an unusual game. As it asks the participants to lose their weight in three months, the one lose the most can get a prize of a hundred thousand US dollars and one saloon, in other word, a car. At first, there are two thousand participants. After elections, there are only thirty of them can join this game.
Martha Lai is a twenty-year-old local mixed-blood woman. Before the game, she weighed 127kg. She joined “The Biggest Loser” in Malaysia and was chosen for the competition. Lai is proud of her effort as she lost 88pounds during the time.
Unfortunately, she is the third runner-up who gets no prize. She said she wasn’t exhausted and will keep doing exercises. It is all due to the fact that she has won the healthy body. Moreover, she is invited to work in a gym.
Lai said she had tried many ways to lose weight, for example, eating drugs. Nevertheless, she said that such methods didn’t work for a long term. The best way to lose weight is to have a balanced diet without eating snacks and have enough exercises.
I agree that the most effective way to improve anything usually is the hardest one if you want a long term effect other than a short one. Thus, the will to do has also needed to be strong. Otherwise, you will give up easily because of the obstacles.
As long as you work hard for what you want, you can and you will achieve that.
